Here’s the trailer for David Zucker’s “Scary Movie 5″, which parodies the “Paranormal Activity” series. This isn’t to be mistaken with Marlon Waynes’ “A Haunted House”, which, yes, also parodies the “Paranormal Activity” movies. Unfortunately, unlike Waynes’ film, which seems to be going balls out to make you laugh, “Scary Movie 5″, er, doesn’t seem to be making that much of an effort. Though I have to admit, the cameo from Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen is amusing, especially the scene of Lohan seeing herself on TV. That made me chuckle. The rest? Not so much. Here’s the plot, though honestly, it doesn’t seem to jive that much with the trailer: Three dancers — one veteran performer and two upstarts who are also best friends — vie for the lead in a new production from a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director. Starring Ashley Tisdale, Kate Walsh, »
The Wrap reports Azaria filed a lawsuit seeking a declaration that fellow actor, Craig Bierko has no claim over the character's voice. Azaria, who voices Mr. Burns, Chief Wiggum and Moe Szyslak for "The Simpsons," says his plans to develop a feature film based on the Brockmire character are being foiled by Bierko's claims that he collaborated with Azaria in creation of the character's voice.
Azaria wants a judge to tell Bierko a character's voice is not copyrightable, so he can move forward with motion picture plans.
Th voice in question made its debut in a 2010 "Funny or Die" sketch.
Hank Azaria, who provides the voices for a host of characters on "The Simpsons," including Moe Szyslak and Chief Wiggum, is suing over the rights to one of his characters. Azaria and his How to Pictures, Inc. filed suit Wednesday against "Leap Year" actor Craig Bierko in U.S. District Court in Central California on Wednesday, saying that Bierko is jeopardizing a potential movie deal by falsely laying claim to a voice that Azaria claims he created nearly 30 years ago. »

Two Hollywood actors are moving a decades-long game over who has a better baseball announcer "voice" into a courtroom. On one side is Hank Azaria, who is most famous for performing the voices of Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy and more on The Simpsons. Azaria has also starred in Mad About You, Godzilla, Shattered Glass, The Birdcage and other TV shows and films. On the other side is Craig Bierko, who has had his own solid career on the stage, in films like Cinderella Man and TV shows including Sex and the City. Azaria is now suing

Stephen Sondheim fans rejoice! Over a year since the New York Philharmonic Orchestra revived Company for a weekend, the sensational concert performance starring Anika Noni Rose, Christina Hendricks, Craig Bierko, Jon Cryer, Martha Plimpton, Neil Patrick Harris, Patti LuPone, and Stephen Colbert is finally released on Blu-ray (and DVD). The musical tells the story of perpetually 35-year-old Bobby in a series of vignettes that show his interactions with his married friends and various girlfriends as he explores “the challenge of maintaining relationships in an increasingly depersonalized society.” A theme that Sondheim found important to examine in 1970 and that audiences still find important today.

What was your favorite scene from the episode?

Kate: I really loved the scene when Carrie came into the apartment, my initial thought was "the girl died" but instead we got to see that Watson was indeed right then the line, "you were always a good friend Joan but you were a better doctor" and has harsh as that comment »

In the latest edition of the TV Fanatic Round Table, staff members Carissa Pavlica and Jim Garner are joined by Amanda from Grizzlybomb.com and Brian from Geek Magazine as they break down the adventures of this iconic detective...
What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Carissa: Really, that talk at the end cannot be beat. I've always been a huge fan of Aidan Quinn and have wondered why he chose a supporting role. That material against Jonny Lee Miller finally gave him the light he deserved. It was beautifully played on both sides. Anyone who had doubts about Elementary should have been greatly pleased by that scene. It showed great depth and hints of where Elementary can take us in the future. »

Is TV big enough for two Sherlocks? With the premiere of its new crime-solving drama, Elementary, on Thursday night, CBS certainly hopes so. But we want your thoughts about the Eye network’s modern take on the famous detective.
First, a brief refresher: While Jonny Lee Miller’s sleuth may share a name with the literary icon played by Benedict Cumberbatch in PBS’ Sherlock, the similarities pretty much end there. This version of Holmes has relocated to New York City, where he works as a consultant to the »

If you’re tired of all our high brow coverage of the latest art house films and experimental cinematic soirees, then perhaps you will enjoy this delightful shot from the upcoming Scary Movie 5. It depicts two of its stars, Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, in bed together. Part of me wonders if the two just ended up in bed together after a drug/drink (delete where applicable) fueled bender, and there just happened to be a camera crew waiting. This shot is said to be taken from the opening scene.

Oh hey, check it out, a first look at the early contender for worst film of 2013. I mean... it's a first look photo of perennial arrestee Lindsay Lohan and human punchline Charlie Sheen, the ultimate Hollywood hookup, in their "outrageous, sexy and hilarious opening scene" in the upcoming Dimension Film "Scary Movie 5." Dear lord, why. Why? Maybe because the "Scary Movie" franchise has grossed $429 million to date with none of the films ever having a budget over $50 million. Not amazing numbers (wait, why do these movies need to cost $40-some million?), but apparently good enough. And they probably continue to rake in money on DVD/cable/VOD etc. Due April 19, 2013, "Scary Movie 5" also stars actors from the has been pile like Ashley Tisdale, Kate Walsh, Molly Shannon, Heather Locklear and Craig Bierko. When Can We Buy Tickets!? We shouldn't judge. Everyone's got to eat. And sometimes eating means starring in. »

First produced in 1970 from a book by George Furth with music and lyrics by the legendary Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story), the musical comedy Company was again mounted in 2011 with an all-star cast and orchestrations by the New York Philharmonic.
The cast of the four-nights-only 2011 revival is led by Neil Patrick Harris (A Very Harold &Kumar Christmas) and also includes Craig Bierko (The Change-Up), Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer (TV’s Two and a Half Men), Christina Hendricks (TV’s Mad Men), Broadway song-and-dance veterans Patti LuPone and Katie Finneran, Martha Plimpton (The Goonies) and Anika Noni Rose (For Colored Girls).

The production on the Malcolm Lee directed sequel spoof 'Scary Movie 5' is already having issues particularly with a certain Lindsay Lohan (below). According to various reports the actress has said to have taken a real dislike to the script which would be the source of self-parody for Miss Lohan ('Machete', 'I Know Who Killed Me') whose career has become somewhat complicated to say the least in the past few years. She, along with equally troubled star Charlie Sheen, would both appear in the follow-up poking a little fun at themselves like any good humoured celebrity should but rumours have it that not only has the 26-year old star faked having walking pneumonia to get out of the job but balked at the idea of having an on-screen snog with Sheen as the script requires. Lohan's busy-bee reps have already denied these claims, 'These stories are untrue, »
The spectacularly stunning Heather Locklear is the latest to join the ever-increasing cast of Malcolm Lee's sequel 'Scary Movie 5'. Locklear who made her name is popular 80's shows such as 'Tj Hooker', 'Dynasty' and then continued her small screen success with the role of Amanda on 'Melrose Place' will be set to parody the role filled by Barbara Hershey in twisted horror tale 'Black Swan'. The 50-year old Locklear (below), who still looks fantastic, will be joining Craig Bierko ('Scary Movie 4'), Ashley Tisdale ('High School Musical 3: Senior Year'), Erica Ash ('MADtv'), Terry Crews ('The Expendables 2'), Roland 'Lil Duval' Powell, Molly Shannon, Simon Rex ('Scary Movie 3') and Lindsay Lohan ('Machete'). The actress will also be seen again on screen with Charlie Sheen her old co-star from the later seasons »

Not Doctor Watson of course, because that role belongs to Lucy Liu (Joan Watson). Instead, David Harbour has landed an Elementary guest star gig as Dr. Mason Baldwin. TVline describes Mason as a brilliant surgeon who will for some reason is tagged as an “unlikely” source of help for Jonny Lee Miller’s modern Sherlock Holmes.
While you might have recently caught Harbour in HBO’s freshmen season of Newsroom, his background seems to be in film, or rather, you probably have seen a movie with him in it, as he’s in some rather large movies like Quantum of Solace, State of Play, Revolutionary Road, Brokeback Mountain, and Green Hornet. He was also the double agent in Pan Am, a show on ABC that I actually didn’t hate (though certainly I saw the limitations of), but got the boot after season 1. Harbour joins a group of season 1 guest »

The Imposter (15)
Documentaries don't come much stranger than this. The film begins with the discovery in Spain in 1997 of a 16-year-old boy. Could this really be Nicholas Barclay, who went missing aged 13 from his home in San Antonio, Texas? Well, no. Nicholas's family welcomed this "boy" into their home without realising that he was in fact a 23-year-old French-Algerian master of deception named Frédéric Bourdin. Then things got really weird.
Shadow Dancer (15)
An embittered mother dedicated to the Ira struggle is forced to turn informer by MI5. This stark and suspenseful thriller returns documentary-maker Marsh to scripted drama after Man On Wire and Project Nim.
